The Memphis Grizzlies were able to get back into the win column Tuesday evening, as they downed the hapless Washington Wizards by a final score of 109-97.

Through 48 minutes of play, Taylor Jenkins' squad saw five separate players dropping in double-digit scoring performances, with two-way big man Trey Jemison pacing all participants on the night with a whopping 24 of his own.

A career-high scoring effort by a landslide, the 24-year-old was seemingly an unstoppable force down in the paint, as he converted on all but two of his 13 shot attempts during the contest.

Following the game's wrap, rookie standout GG Jackson (who cashed in with 19 of his own points) couldn't help but praise Jemison's performance against the Wizards, and described his play on the night with one simple word: "Effort."

GG Jackson praises Trey Jemison's career night with Grizzlies

"He's running his a** off. He's running the floor, blocking shots, rebounding, [he's] in the right place at the right time. He's a hell of a locker room guy, great teammate, always uplifting, and it's a good night for him."

On top of his scoring efforts, Jemison also added on 6 rebounds and 2 blocks while cashing in on both of his free throw attempts during his 31 minutes of play.

What makes this performance even more special for the youngster is that it came against his former employer in the Wizards, who originally had him under a 10-day contract earlier this year before said deal expired and, ultimately, he opted to take his talents to the 38103.

During his tenure with the Grizzlies Jemison has seen action on 12 occasions and, including Tuesday's showing, has started six games. He's boasting averages of 7.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks as a whole and, when in the first-five lineup, is producing to the tune of 11.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks.

Hopefully, Jemison can carry over this play into the second half of a back-to-back during their upcoming bout against the Charlotte Hornets, where Memphis is currently favored.
